We try to keep ambient temperature at about 21°c, or about 70°f. This keeps our results review to review as fair as possible.  All benchmarks were done at stock speeds. The exceptions to this were Cinebench R15 and 3DMARK. Both Cinebench R15 and 3DMARK were tested at stock, and with the CPU and GPU overclocked. Although the stock clock for the 8600k is 3.6 GHz, my chip ran at a constant 4.1 GHz. This was after resetting the bios to optimized defaults. So, all benchmarks run at stock, show the CPU at 4.1 GHz. Some of the charts have results for both the 7700k and 8700k in them. This is just done to give you an idea of how the 8600k compares to older generation flagship processors. I personally ran all the benchmarks used in this review. For gaming benchmarks, each game was run three times, and the recorded results are an average of the three.

  1. Am I able to remove the WIreless AC card from this Gigabyte Z370n Wifi board to replace it with another module I’d like to upgrade to?
